"Au fil des toiles" an exhibition not to be missed this summer!
The original works featured in this exhibition, produced by young contemporary artists, showcase how fabric is represented in painting. Now it’s your turn to play!
Your job is to find the works of art exhibited amongst all the Museum’s pieces throughout the exhibition rooms. A sort of treasure hunt full of surprises where the artworks trigger artistic contemplation when you discover them… highly-unusual works presented in parallel to the Museum’s more classical works… a “magical” experience to enjoy!
Incidentally, you can touch’n’feel samples of fabrics presented throughout the exhibition journey: linen, hemp, hessian, as well as ribbons, lace, mesh, embroidery… an experience sure to spark all your senses!
